Chelsea transfer news
The Blues shot-stopper has been a loyal servant at Stamford Bridge, establishing himself as one of the finest keepers in the world in a highly successful career with the club.
However, Cech is now likely to leave Chelsea at the end of this season after falling behind Thibaut Courtois in the pecking order, putting rivals Arsenal on alert.
According to the London Evening Standard, Chelsea will still command a £10m fee or possibly slightly more from the Gunners, despite the Czech Republic international only having a year to go on his contract, meaning he could leave for free at the end of next season.
Paris Saint-Germain seem to be the slight favourites to land the 32-year-old at the moment, while Liverpool, Inter Milan and AS Roma are also mentioned as interested in signing him.
